Noves llavors (biològiques) plantades avui

Xavi Thursday January 9, 2014

Avui he plantat en alguns tests del balcó de casa algunes de les llavors antigues que tenia, i alguna de les noves que m'han "portat els Reis" (les fotos de sota són orientatives, tretes de la Wikipedia, es clar, per que jo encara les tinc només en forma de llavor wink:



Ah, i he hagut de plantar in extremis les llavors que em quedaven d'"Enciam Valmaine" (Lactuca sativa var. longifolia) per que m'havia entrar algun bitxet al sobre de paper on tenia les llavors, i he volgut provar sort llençant tot el contingut del sobret (restes de bitxets i llavors restants) a sobre d'algunes jardineres, malgrat encara li mancaven un parell de mesos per poder plantar-se a l'aire lliure, segons la teoria.


A veure com es comporten en properes setmanes/mesos! smile

Why this site?

Xavi Friday September 6, 2013

This website gathers information on projects from Xavier de Pedro which might serve for social gardening, as seeds that might grow (beyond the initial action of the gardener) for changing society into (hopefully) something better smile

Why something about "seeds", "gardening" and such, instead of the traditional way of speaking (and acting) with "Building a better society" etc?

Because I learned that a better world needs the ability to:

  • adapt to the changing environment in which it resides
  • grow when needed, and change shape or reproduce when the maximum size is reached for that system.
  • die at some point while passing the information to younger organisms that will stay there for longer.

Plants & living organisms can do it; buildings can not. Therefore, We need to "Plant a better world", and not just aim to "build it".

Buildings last a few thousand years, at the most. Living beings last (community-wise) one or two orders of magnitude more, at least. And Life on Earth has lasted so far at least 3500 milion years: why not learning from Living beings that create much more sustainable systems?
